Julio Castro A Peruvian teacher living in the USHe teaches high school math Eula Boys He lives in the Santa Clarita Valley, four hours from the school where he teaches. You don’t have a car, so you have to do your best to be on time.
Teacher every day Castro He got up at 4.30 in the morning and went to school, always in a hurry, and He returned home at 9:30 pm when his three children were already asleep.
One day, a student found the professor nostalgically Googling cheap cars under $1,500. When the other students learned about the story, they thought of some way to help him and repay Castro for the teachings and dedication he had given them. All decided to work together to raise funds.
Through Facebook and Instagram, students and their parents ran a month-long campaign in which they managed to raise US$30,000 for a car, insurance and petrol for a year; Thus, the group of students, in complicity with their parents, sought to repay the teacher for the effort they had to travel miles to reach classes on time.
After raising the money, the youth organized a “teacher appreciation” party, but it was really just for Castro, who arrived late but was greeted in a tunnel with balloons and confetti. Ultimately, it will be a Mazda to help his teacher.
“I always say to them, ‘When life doesn’t go your way, what do you do? Don’t cry about it—don’t complain about it,'” said Professor Castro, who never doubted the gift. Be grateful for what you already have and then move on. One day some good things will happen.
“That’s proof,” he said happily in the dark blue 2019 Mazda.
“Don’t do it because you expect a reward. Do it because it comes from your heart”Castro, 31, is described by his students as a patient and resourceful teacher, skilled at helping students succeed.
Senior Charlie Leeds said, “We’ve been taught certain values like empathy, and treating others the way you want to be treated. Mr. Castro is the epitome of that. With this car, with this new opportunity, you’ll find more ways to help others around you,” he said. .
The teacher, on his part, points out that he tries to motivate the students in the field of teaching. “Encourage them so they don’t need to ask for help. Because it’s not just about knowing the answer, it’s about how to get the answer and I might not tell you… Math is a skill learned with practice and dedication, and it will be respected as long as you respect it. With you. About the note Don’t worry, it will be taken care of in time,” commented Castro.
Finally, the professor expressed his gratitude and recalled the harsh conditions many undocumented immigrants face and earn even less money than him. “I have relatives who are undocumented, undocumented, have three jobs, are paid less than me and don’t complain. (…) I’m so grateful to have an incredible partner and incredible children. So this journey is really a no-brainer,” said the professor. finished
